Rain or shine, depending on the hour, 450+ TUG members gathered at the Gaylord Palms resort in Kissimmee, Florida for the annual conference to further the mission of the group; attendees spent the week sharing their knowledge of Sage Timberline software.
You know what they say, “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.” Well that would just be boring. We’re here to tell all! This was Kissimmee for crying out loud!
Okay, it was a conference not a bachelor party.
What happened was four days of seasoned users teaching members how to better utilize the software. It was Timberline boot camp for some and a refresher for others. Most of the sessions were broken out by roles in the back office, Controllers took accounting or reporting track classes, estimators took beginning or advanced estimating track courses depending on their experience level, and you guessed it, project managers took courses in their respective discipline. Additionally, owners and CFO’s had the opportunity to attend an executive track program, which featured best practices and risk management sessions.
Regardless of the track chosen, all of the material was focused on Timberline’s powerful platform for financial and operations technology. With new releases of the software approaching, a new SQL server platform and cloud technology all in the current outlay – users are anxious to see what they have planned next.
